Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is absolutely absurd and still funny as hell. Reeves and Winters have remarkable chemistry together.
May 5, 2020
A spectacularly stoo-pid slacker comedy that actually gets better as it goes along, if only because the ungainly chemistry of the two leads really does grow on you.

It's an inspired bit of silliness, and one of the best of its kind.

Thankfully, the sense of humor still holds and the lead characters are as sweet and dumb as ever. They mean well, they just don't have follow through--and we've all known that person.

... this is a spirited doofus comedy sustained by the sweet, slack-jawed performances of Reeves and Winter as dumbfounded idiots who stumble through time to cram for their history final ...

The script by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon is more clever in the small details than in the broad strokes.

It dodges the pitfalls of message-heavy teen movies and skirts the spite of the dumb-and-dumber era it arguably helped birth. Add two innately loveable leads and you can see it takes some smarts to sell something quite this daft.

What really makes it all work are Reeves and Winter. They're such appealing, wide-eyed idiots that it's impossible not to pull for them. They make a great team.

A totally excellent film.

Though its one-liners elicit the occasional chortle -- when Bill and Ted don medieval armor, there's an obligatory heavy-metal joke -- the film doesn't engage, because its heroes don't engage with the historical characters.

Make no mistake, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure is not a satire of mindlessness; it's unabashed glorification of dumbness for dumbness' sake.

A nonstop giggle from start to finish, this beguiling grab-bag of time-travel clichs, hard-rock music and Valley-speaking cool dudes is a flawless, purpose-built junk movie.

still relateable today

The humor is light (and light-headed)-so much so that you'd have to say it's a stoner movie with no pot.

'Be excellent to each other.' Out of the mouths of babehounds... [Blu-ray]

Silly time-capsule comedy ideal for older tweens.

Wow, man, and to think Keanu Reeves started here. Already outdated comedy.

Bill and Ted has an intangibly charming goofiness about it that is somehow endearing.

Reeves, with his beguilingly blank face and loose-limbed, happy-go-lucky physical vocabulary, and Winter, with his golden curls, gleefully good vibes and 'bodacious' vocabulary, propel this adventure as long as they can.
